With external N-Type antenna connectors, you can freely match the antenna to meet the application of wireless backbone network deployment. The high performance and durable design are made to withstand harsh environment deployment. This provides product durability and user peace of mind when deploying wireless devices in outdoor environments. In addition, it can automatic optimization of deployment of MAN-MESH mesh backbone links, it can also be used as an AP Station to connect terminal wired or wireless devices. Provide a full coverage wireless network without dead ends.


Auto-Configuring Mesh Network

The Layer3 Mesh Backbone Auto Link Optimization which provides user friendly and simpler setting configuration. It can extend the wireless network to areas that are difficult or expensive to connect via Ethernet cabling. CERIO MANMESH provides Intelligent WiFi Mesh technology, Meshed APs self-configure and establish a high-performance, robust, and resilient network automatically, without any need for manual intervention or provisioning. Provide a full coverage wireless network without dead ends, no matter where you are, you can automatically and seamlessly connect to the optimal wireless signal at any time.

Self-Healing Networking with Per-Flow Optimization

This technology can prevent network paralysis from occurring. Each node in the WiFi Mesh Network is connected and communicates with each other. When a node in a mesh network environment is failure through a wired or wireless interface, Mesh will dynamically reconfigure and find the best link and automatically detect and forward traffic to other node link AP devices with Internet network connectivity. To ensure that the connection in the network can continue normally.

Multi-Channel Routing Protocols

Provides Layer3 Intelligent wireless mechanism and advanced proprietary routing protocols and algorithms continuously evaluate link performance by measuring a variety of factors, including signal strength, throughput, link cost, interference, and frame reception rates. Wireless APs take measurements individually and work together with neighboring APs to optimize overall capacity and client throughput. APs route traffic over different channels as needed to minimize per-hop performance degradation and maximize client performance.

Support MAN-MESH Multi-Channel WAN Backup

When using LAN wired connecting multiple MAN-Mesh APs of WAN for configuration, Mesh will dynamically reconfigure and find the best link through the WAN / Internet route, automatically select one of the best available WAN to access the uplink connection. Therefore, a backup WAN architecture is generated for multiple paths of multiple WANs in the environment. When any WAN in the environment is interrupted, it can be backed up to ensure the Internet connection.


MAN MESH Core Software Mode

The CERIO MAN MESH Intelligent Core Software Mode provides Layer3 Mesh Backbone Auto Link Optimization, it’s using simpler and smartest way to improve the connection quality of the wireless network which let a large number of users in the vast space can enjoy a stable quality wireless network. In addition, each node in the mesh wireless network system can be an independent, providing fast connection and a more stable wireless network. With Intelligent WiFi Mesh Topology, the wireless node will communicate with each other and can be set automatically, which greatly reduces the complicate setting procedure. The MAN-MESH Layer3 Mesh Backbone Auto Link Optimization also provides, when one of the wireless nodes fails or disconnected, the other wireless node in the mesh network can communicate with each other and recover the network connection automatically. Which is an excellent solution for infrastructure, surveillance, IOT and in-train backhaul. And for emergencies, rapidly deployable and robust communications between each member when emergencies are involved in difficult operations inside buildings, towers,ard-hit disaster areas or surrounded in forest fires.
